Express Entry is not a new immigration program; it is however a new application management tool implemented by Citizenship & Immigration Canada (CIC). All applicants eligible under the following programs must first create an Express Entry profile :
Once a profile has been created it will enter the Express Entry pool and given a ranking score out of 1200 points.

CIC has promised to process these applications within 6 months.
